in dealing with iraq and afghanistan? if you are not satisfied, what you think president obama should consider in a way of changes? >> i am not satisfied. as a libertarian, i seek a world at peace with other nations. i look to thomas jefferson's quotation for inspiration. peace, converse -- commerce, -- america should stop acting as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum board is defense, not offense. we do not have the money to continue the wars. our money could be more wisely spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- including iraq, afghanistan, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped our enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us
more. ladies and gentlemen, we are going to end the war in afghanistan as we did in iraq.

these wars in a iraq that cost so much in terms of life and money. the other assertion that the obama health care plan is going to ruin our system -- national geographic two years ago had a comparison of the cost expended per capita by various european nations. portugal spent $2,500 per person per year on health care and was better off in terms of mortality and the united states, paying over three times more. guest: i do not believe it. when you see the flow in the different direction, i will believe it. when you see more americans going to europe for health care rather than europeans coming here for health care, then i will buy the european system or at least part of that argument. in terms of the so-called arab spring, the president, when he went to cairo, said he hoped that based on mutual respect would have much better relations. we do not have much better relations. say what he wanted that the bush administration -- i agree that the war in iraq was the right thing to do. i'm worried we will lose ground there. barack obama has improved people's views of the united states, but the situati

ago was that most people thought it would be about iraq. on september 15, the world financial markets froze. everything became about the economy. we thought that this risk would be about the economy and not the personalities of the candidate. i wonder if what is happening in the middle east will turn into something much larger from now until election day. it can never tell exactly what it is that will create the context on election day. that might turn out to be a much bigger deal than we ever thought it would be. >> i was taught that their campaigns for operating on multiple levels. i wrote about how campaigns could evolve and really committed differently with one household than their neighbors. there are more channels including targeted web advertising. a campaign can have a discussion with a set of individuals and across demographic individuals. it receives different behaviors. the day to day big news story we are talking about does not necessarily where the campaign is devoting their resources. there was back and forth yesterday about egypt and libya. that does not mean that obama
